Ballots have been sent to all skippers listed in the 2005 directory. An award for the most creative entry will be presented at the skipper's dinner, October 1.

Back Issues

Past issues of the Peggy Jo studio are here.

"No love of the natural heart is safe unless the human heart has been satisfied by God first"

Oswald Chambers

"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver"

Proverbs 25-11

This newsletter is sent out each Monday morning and covers events of interest to active people no matter what their social status. It attempts to publicize worthwhile events that do not recieve adequate media attention.



Women who received flowers last week reported this really works. Let me tell you from my experience this works! My mood was great last week! "

Peggy Jo

Flower power In three studies, women reported more positive feelings for up to two weeks after receiving flowers, and were friendlier to those around them when given blossoms instead of a more practical gift , say researchers at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Scientists suspect the flowers' scent causes the brain to fire off endorphins, lifting women's spirits.

Just wanted to make sure you guys get the message.

  • Ramblings of a retired Mind
  • I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is those cell phones that everyone has clipped on. I can't afford one. So, I'm wearing my garage door opener.

    You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people didn't like me anyway.

    I was thinking about old age and decided that it is 'when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it'.

    I thought about making a fitness movie, for folks my age, and call it "Pumping Rust."

    I have gotten that dreaded furniture disease. That's when your chest is falling into your drawers!

    I know, when people see a cat's litter box, they always say, "Oh, have you got a cat?" Just once I want to say, "No, it's for company!"

    Employment application blanks always ask 'who is to be notified in case of an emergency.' I think you should write, "A Good Doctor!"

    Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do -- write to these men? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen could look for them while they deliver the mail? Or better yet, arrest them while they are taking their pictures!

    I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then, it dawned on me, they were cramming for their finals. As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve.

  • Let's not forget
  • Let's continue to remember and pray for the people involved in the New Orleans and the Gulf Coast and now the Texas coast disasters.

    Thanx for the cards and prayers for my Mom they'r really appreciated and it's working

    Let's celebrate Karin Webers great courage and perseverance! Go Karin Go !

    Karin Weber who is waging a fight against cancer that is moving about her body would also enjoy your cards and visits Her Address is: Karin Weber
    212 Walper
    Clawson, Mi 48017

    At the time of this writing, Karin is doing a little better and is still at home. The doctors are working on pain management by trying to find the correct dosage. She is working on her mobility. she is still wearing the specially constructed sleeves that she is required to wear are designed to push the accumulated liquids that are causing her arms to swell back toward her lymphatic system. She will continue chemo therapy at the Great Lakes Cancer Center.

    While talking to her she asked that we relay a message of gratitude to the many people who have sent her cards and flowers and for the visits at the hospital. She said people have been stocking her refrigerator and at least one person a day has been visiting her at her home.

    She is determined to make it to the "Skipper's Dinner" on 10/1. Let's help her by continuing the spiritual and active support.

    It's ok to send get well cards to people event if you don't know them personally.
